NWU Raring To Go

NWU are sitting pretty at the top of the table and are relishing the chance to distance themselves from the rest of the pack as they aim to cement themselves as major title contenders.
 
Coach Amos Xabanisa is aware the Tuks possess an aerial threat with their tall strikers and has full confidence that his gameplan will hand the Mafikeng students maximum points.
 
"We know they are a good team. They are strong in the air given the height of most of their players. We need to be tactically disciplined and stick to our strengths," he said.
 
NWU have been hard at work sharpening up their defensive lines to nullify the Tuks' strengths but it's not all defence for the visitors as they have the tournament's leading goalscorer in their ranks.
 
Tshenolo Machwisa has bagged four games thus far, which includes a hatrick against UCT in Round Four.
 
"We are working on our defense but at the same time we need to sharpen our attack as they are also good defensively. We need to use our strength of football skills to dictate the outcome of the game," Xabanisa said.
 
NWU Squad: 1 Amogelang Maduo, 7 Sipho Mateis, 2 Lebogang Phetlhu, 3 Sifiso Ngwenya, 20 Tseko Weevirs, 12 Mogomotsi Molefe, 6 Sandile Mbatha, 13 Thatohatsi Santos, 10 Orebotse Mongae, 9 Tshenolo Machwisa, 11 Lindani Dudula, 24 Aobakwe Mopelwa, 25 Goitseone Naane, 21 Lebogang Motshegare, 22 Madie Makwela, 18 Thapelo Tlabakwe, 8 Kagiso Modimoeng.
 
Date: Monday, August 18
 
Venue: Tuks Stadium
 
Time: 18:00
